A Common Cold?

Haven't posted because we've been out of commission. We caught some kind of a bug and it has kicked our butts. We've been trying to find the turn off button for the mucus factor that have set up shop in our noses. We've both been drained of all our energy and have only moved from bed to recliners for almost a week.

We did make a visit to a local minute clinic and that was a terrible waste of time. The NP told us it was just a common cold and we needed to just rest and would recover in a week or so.

I'm not a doctor, but when you ache all over and your sinus are overflowing and your ears are stopped up to the point of deafness, it seems like more than a common cold.

In four days Dawn and I have gone thru four boxes of tissue and three rolls of toilet paper. Now we need a 55 gallon drum of lotion to rub on our very raw noses.

We are planning to spend the winter in south Texas. We just haven't decided what area of south Texas.

Travel Safe Dawn and Denise

  1. We have the same crud here in Wisconsin, we recommend Musinex(spelling?). It's the only thing that cuts down on the dripping. Same dripping, deafness and lungs full of crud.
    We've been down with it for ten days, it feels really bad for just a cold, I thinks it's bronchitis aggravated by all the dust in the air from farming, corn and soybeans being cut everywhere.
    It seems a bit better today, here's to your health in the future!

  3. Sounds as if your common cold might have evolved into a sinus infection. Doctor and meds might be required. Try Mucinex D. It really helps clear the mucus out of my sinuses. And drink lots of water & juice. Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Hope you are feeling better..We use to go to Falcon Lake, but that is out of the question now...and we don't care for "the Valley". At one time we were thinking of Port Mansfield area on the Gulf...balmy weather but not quite South enough for the congestion(oops, sorry about that word).. of the Valley..:-))

  7. Wow, I guess you guys have really been sick. It sure seems like the doctor could have given you something!! Al swears by Oregano oil and I swear by Eichinacea. Hope you get better soon.

  8. I'm trying to remember exactly where you are. If you are anywhere near the Austin area, you may have a touch of Cedar Fever! Here in NJ I (along with a vast majority of the popular) have been suffering with allergies for about a week and a half. Hang in there!
